Quick question. We are planning a cruise in April during spring break and have to drive from South Carolina to Florida and park in a park and drive in Ft Lauderdale. The whole family is going and we were toying with taking everybody in the RV. Any opinions on parking a 32 ft C class in a Park and Go for a week while we're on the boat? Safety? Alternatives? I'm open to suggestions.

If you have a phone number I think you should call.You will need at least two spaces if they are pull thru. If not pull thru it would take a lot of room that is at a premium.Just my opinion.

I figure it would cost more. 2 years ago we did kind of the same thing with a truck and it was about a hundred bucks for the week. Any opinions about safety?

Check some of the hotels in the area. Several will let you park in their lot and take their shuttle to the port for a reasonable charge. Some, if you stay the night, will do it for free. But you need to call to see if they can accommodate your coach. Enjoy!

Part the airport and let the cruse line bus take you from there.

There should be parking available for oversized vehicle parking somewhere at the cruise terminal. Never been to Ft. Lauderdale, but have taken family in the rv to Jacksonville and Canaveral on several cruises and parked at the terminal. Look at the port website for parking availability. We stopped at a hotel for overnights on the way down from NC.

This is an old post but it suggest that the normal parking lots won't accommodate an rv. It does give information about a storage facility right nextdoor to a parking facility that does accommodate rvs.

I don't know how close or far from the terminal it is but there's alway Uber to get your gang to the terminal.

There's some information in this link that might be helpful.

Parking for Cruises in or near Fort Lauderdale, Florida | USA Today

I think the storage lot would be the most economical. I just went through this for a trip we're planning to Fort Myers. I thought it would be easy to find a place to leave our rv for a week or so while we stay with friends.

I finally found a nice secure lot less than a mile from our freinds' place for 60 bucks for the month. No one will do daily or weekly but 60 bucks seems like a good deal for secure parking while we're visiting.

Good luck and enjoy your cruise.
